top concerns, jon. jon: so the fwi investigation is -- fbi investigation is still going on, right? does that hold potential jeopardy for secretary clinton? >> reporter: probably not, jon, because the fbi investigation is, as you say, focused on culpability for the actual attacks, not on the obama administration's shifting account in the eight days that followed 9/11. the hallmark of that shift, of course, was u.n. ambassador susan rice's appearance on five sunday shows september 16th when she asserted on the basis of of talking points prepared by the ic that benghazi was not a preplanned attack, a position later disavowed by the obama administration as self-evidently untrue. >> so, and we did not -- i think accurate, sir, i certainly did not know of any reports that contradicted the ic talking points at the time that ambassador rice went on the tv shows. >> reporter: yet such reports were circulating in clinton's own department and at the national security council where she sits well before rice's sunday show tour. fox news has published internal state department e-mails that note

it on college campuses. it's focusing on the wrong issue. this fbi said that the assault weapon ban of 1994 did nothing to lower crime and does anybody that's watching this broadcast now think that a signed poster that said do not carry your weapon in this area would prevent what happened in sandy hook. and what about the hipaa laws when a professional finds out, what happens. >> and one of the weapons used at sandy hook, bush master, mr-14. before the patent on the m-16 was expired. it was-- >> domestic. but it can fire 45 shots in a minute by squeezing the trigger, this is the problem. it's too easy to kill. >> sean: and i know a lot about guns. let me he throw it to dennis kucinich instead. i'm glad you have a fundamental understanding of the second amendment more so than anybody else on your side so far that i've heard. i'm willing to have an honest discussion, a marksman since i was 11, 12 years old. i understand more than anything about gun safety. my guns are locked up, you can't get to them. we should have ownership in these countries. and we want to stop sandy hooks. don't we have to d
. >> pelley: did you take that seriously? >> tygart: absolutely. turned it over to the f.b.i. to investigate it, which they are doing. >> pelley: tygart's agency was also threatened. the c.e.o. of the livestrong foundation, armstrong's cancer charity, lobbied against usada before congress. members of congress and 23 california state representatives called for an investigation of the agency's practices and its taxpayer funding. and yet, you chose to go ahead? you were gambling the fate of usada itself on this one case. >> tygart: if we're unwilling to take this case and help this sport move forward, that we're here for naught. we should shut down. and if they want to shut us down for doing our job on behalf of clean athletes, and the integrity of competition, then shut us down. >> pelley: last year, when tygart made his evidence public, armstrong had the option of a hearing and confronting the witnesses, but he chose not to fight, and he was handed that lifetime ban. in last week's interview, armstrong said the ban was unfair considering that riders who testified against him were banned for o
's no reason down the road, i would assume but for the moment i know that there is an f.b.i. investigation going on because i personally called the f.b.i. director and was debriefed by him and told they're making progress and some things may or may not be right to take place in the not too distant future. >> will you work with me, then, i'm going, to get that behind us and find out what actually happened and move beyond that, can you make that commitment to me? >> i think, senator, in all fareness, i think we do know what happened. i think that it is very clear, were you at the briefing with the tapes? >> no. >> well, there was a briefing with tapes which we all saw, those of us who went to it. which made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with our intel folks who described to us precisely what we were seeing. we saw the events unfold. we had a very complete and detailed description. >> yes, we know what happened in benghazi now because we have reports. what we don't know is why we were misled. i'm just looking to make sure that you as secretary will work with me so we find out wha
about it. i'll tell you this, if so, it's going to be short lived, because i know from talking to the f.b.i. director that they are pursuing that diligently. he was personally just in libya. meeting on this and those efforts are going to continue. and i know that this president -- you know, he doesn't bluff about these kinds of things. he has said they are going to pay a price and said he would go into pakistan if we had evidence to operate on and i'm confident when and if we are prepared, we will execute with respect to finding justice for what happened in benghazi. >> the keystone xl pipeline and senator boxer said, it wouldn't belong before it crossed your desk. a bipartisan group of senators signed on to a letter to president obama requesting that he approve the construction of the pipeline. we are asking that the review process be completed by the end of march and i hope you will be able to comply with that. >> i will try. i need to check in with the legal department and make sure -- i don't want to make a promise that i'm unaware of what can be fulfilled. i can tell you this. it's hap

. the fbi and the local turkish police have joined the search for the 33-year-old wife and mother of two. she was last seen leaving her hostel for dinner on monday night and seems to have vanished with very few clues, regarding her whereabouts, leaving behind her passport, clothing and phone chargers. she is a photographer and left her staten island home to take pictures in istanbul on january 7. she checked in frequently, texting family members and skyping with her two children, daily. her sister received a text message from her monday morning, but no one has heard from her since. she was planning to return tuesday, january 25, but missed home and decided to move her flight up to the 22nd. when her husband went to pick her up from the airport, she never showed. >> you know, have you so many thoughts going through your mind. you don't know what to think. you dont know what to believe. you dont know what to expect. you don't know what's going to come out of this. >> he is traveling to turkey tonight. the couple has been married 14 years. they have two children, both boys, ages 9 and 11. t
are the people who are being prosecuted? where are the suspects in custody? is that for her to answer or the f.b.i. and why don't we have answers about that? >> we don't have answers 'cause they haven't done anything. one thing they called an f.b.i. investigation, which is a criminal investigation, this was obviously an act of terror. but by saying it doesn't matter, then that sets aside or diminishes the importance of all the measures they failed to take. there were warnings. there was attacks on a british ambassador. there was a request to keep an additional security force there because of the rising threat. it was obvious that there was -- including rather urgent messages september by our am -- sent by our ambassador back to washington which she said she never saw. i was in tripoli with christopher stevens on july 7. he was deeply concerned about security there. cnn reporter found a message from him weeks later in the burned out consulate. so look, this thing has been a cover-up. i'm sorry to tell you that probably the adoring media will now say, well, that chapter is over. well, it's not over
in the field. myself, the head of the fbi and keith alexander have worked very closely together to develop playbooks and to ascertain who has what roles and responsibilities in different scenarios. in civilian space, our ability to detect, prevent, and mitigate its assisted based on whether we know something has occurred. the idea of sharing and getting notice, particularly when the infiltrated entity is part of the nation's critical impasse structure that everybody else relies upon, is key. the ability to undertake certain medications -- mitigation measures is key. the ability to hire personnel without some other restrictions of the civil service -- civil service system is key. legislation would have the effect of clarifying, making sure those responsibilities are in statute. >> why don't you explain what's physma is. >> i will let you explain what is. >> finish your sentence, request that is a concept -- >> finish your sentence. >> that is a concept -- anyway, legislation will be critical. part of our job is to educate congress on what is going on out there. educate the public. we say cy
know, an f.b.i. guy moves in next door. sounds like a great show. called "the americans." >> gretchen: kerry russell stars in that. >> brian: it sounds like something we unearth add few years ago. >> steve: this is not a big joke, iran says they have successfully sent a monkey into space. they say that they need satellites and monkeys into space to monitor natural disasters in the earthquake prone nation, improve telecommunications and expand military presence. >> brian: so you have iranian contact. i wanted to find out more on this story when you were interviewing the male models. so i was able to do that. i reassembled and they've described to me what the monkey was like on takeoff. i sketched it out as they were talking to me. this is a look at the monkey. he is inside the space capsule and this is the iranian space capsule built to scale. this is the speed. you're seeing the speed coming out. that's the monkey saying, i can't believe, in monkey language, i cannot believe i'm going into space. >> gretchen: suddenly i want to be back interviewing the male model who is getting his mb
've got the fbi, the alcohol, tobacco, firearms bureau and others converging on the scene and we're told there are about five different local agencies surrounding the woods there looking for that one shooter who apparently has not been identified. as ed reported, this sounds very different, wolf, from the types of situations we've seen aurora, colorado, newtown, connecticut, and other places where one individual went in indiscriminately and started shooting. this appears to be an altercation between two people in a school setting which makes it sound like more like the things we've seen at public schools and major metropolitan areas and some other universities where police have to start asking questions, was it drug-related, was it gang-related, was this a score settling of any type? these are the types of questions. and congresswoman sheila jackson lee of texas who represents this area, harris county, texas, was asked that question and sort of restated it on air a while ago but we doubled back to her office and they told us, the fact of the matter is, the school does not have, to their
's currently at the justice department. she was fbi director mueller's chief of staff. she also worked on the enron task force helping to prosecute some of the people in the enron case. you know who else did? the current white house counsel. so they have sort of a women's -- they are sort of -- you can talk about a boys club, they are a women's power club. they prosecuted some of those men with enron and came up through the ranks with alaina kagan. >> real quickly here, i know there are three recess appointments the president made and the supreme court has now said they are unconstitutional. what does that mean for the white house? he made these appointments while the senate was out during recess. how is the white house responding? >> reporter: we have asked them for comment and let me check my blackberry to see if it's coming in. it now has to go to the supreme court again. this will probably go to the supreme court and be battled out there. the president can make recess appointments when the senate is out of session. at the time the president made these recess appointments, the senat
attack. they try to go after other web sites before in the past, fbi and doj web site. they've been successful hacking those sites before. we don't know exactly why they've decided to name these files after current supreme court justices. what we do know is that they're asking anonymous syndicates to download files and be prepared when the order comes down for this operation last resort they're calling it to be prepared to hack other government web sites. >> we haven't heard from the government. we haven't had any reaction yet. >> no. we've reached out to the doj, and we're about to reach out to the state department, the washington, d.c., bureaus, calls doing that now. we just don't know what the government is saying, their stance. we know that the ussc.gov web site seems to have been taken down. it's not accessible at this point. over the last couple of hours, it pops up with the anonymous web site page, how it's been hacked. right now it's down entirely. >> thanks for the update. i know you'll continue to watch it. thank you. >>> just weeks after the country was stunned by the con
. will it happens the assault weapons ban. >> no, here is the reason why. it was not renewed in 2004. the fbi and law enforcement officers saying this did not work. what we know is that since the lifting of that ban you've seen crime go down. people, many times, bill, what ends up happening, you get the gun-free zones and you get guns in the hand of criminals and you're right, there's a lot of evil in this world but the assault weapons ban is not the way to fix it. bill: okay. on the assault, let me come back to fixing that in a moment. what about a background check? could that pass? >> well, background checks already are happening and, even, you know, some people will say, there's a gun show loophole but you know what? the most of the your vendors at the gun shows are licensed vendors. they are already doing those background checks there is a very small percentage, i think it is about four or 5% of the guns that are transferred into individual to individual without background checks. bill: so much has been proposed publicly. does any of that pass now in your view? >> i don't think you're goi
behavior, where there was very little evidence of wrongdoing. the fbi and the justice department had been reviewing all these e-mails, as part of their investigation of general petraeus. and they threw them all over the pentagon. the pentagon goes, geez, what do we do now? and they decided, gosh, i guess we better investigate them. so the inspector general at the pentagon was ordered by secretary panetta from his plane, he's traveling and says, gosh, we better do the investigation. so that's been rolling along. and there was never a thought to be evidence of real wrongdoing. general allen has been held up. he's our commander in kabul. he's a very fine general. and so it's good that this finally ended today. >> so what we've got, 9:00 eastern time, in about 15 minutes, the benghazi hearings, and secretary of state hillary clinton. what can we expect? >> this is going to be a tough swan song for secretary clinton. she's been such a tireless secretary of state, and she's going to be held to account by republicans, who are still upset about what happened in benghazi, where four americans were
the fbi weeks to get on the ground. you had news outlets that were picking up diaries and important papers from the ground. we did not seal the crime scene. we did nothing to bring this perpetrator to justice. of course the terrorists are the ones responsible. but shame on us for not holding the people who supposedly read these cables and did nothing, asking for more security. what does she say about the cables? she says oh we get millions of cables a year by protocol they always go to the secretary of state. i don't have time to read a million cables. but somebody read them. and somebody ignored them. they were pleadings for more security and they were unheeded. >> so, congresswoman, in 30 seconds, can you give us your theory as to why, if we have the face of the perpetrators on videotape, why aren't we following up more aggressively? we being the u.s. government? >> we had a political narrative, the obama administration did, of the george bush equivalent of mission accomplished. it was job well done. we wanted the narrative to say everything is okay in libya. it's been a wonderful succes
